    Sri Lanka beat England to clinch one day series Featured

    June 04, 2014

    Sri Lanka 224-4 (48.2 overs) beat England 219 (48.1 overs) by six wickets.

    Sri Lanka eased to a six-wicket victory against England and clinched the one-day series 3-2 after a controversial encounter at Edgbaston.

    Sri Lanka won with 10 balls to spare thanks to Lahiru Thirimanne's 60.

    Lahiru Thirimanne is named man-of-the-match for seeing Sri Lanka home with an unbeaten 60 off 101 balls.

    The man of the series is Lasith Malinga, who has taken seven wickets but, more importantly, has kept England in check at the start and end of their innings in this series.

    A keenly-fought one-day series came to an end - and it's all set up nicely for the first Test between these sides, which begins at Lord's next Thursday.
